This class runs simultaneously with the Tumble Tots for the second half. The first 30 minutes, before the tumble tots, is devoted to teaching forward and backward roll techniques, beginning cartwheels, bridges, or handstands. On the bars, kids will do activities that increase arm strength and learn about the front support and pull over. On the beam, gymnasts will learn how to walk in releve, do kicks and increase balance by doing various skills along the beam. This class not only focuses on skill development but listening, following the group, staying in line, and waiting turns which are skills needed to advance to the Intro class. The class might also conclude with a structured game.
